[Dixielandjazz] My Brain Hurts!

Hi Chaps.

Can anyone help me with any details of a tune I last heard in the 80's played 
by a semi-pro Dixieland band in the North West of England and haven't heard 
since. A few notes from it have been drifting through my mind recently and 
I'd like to lay the ghost and find a recording.

The title is 'Jumping the Line'. As I recall the clarinet led in with the 
melody and it had the sort of sound I usually think of as a Bechet/De Paris 
thing - the same sort of swing as 'The Onions' and 'The Martinique',

Any ideas, or would lobotomy be a more effective way of achieving closure?
